Why do people freak out everytime they use technology on a car. Cars are way harder to steal today then they were 20 years ago.

Weird… I’m sure I’ve heard of luxury car models already having fingerprint authentication in doors. Perhaps most of them were aftermarket, but still.

I want my girlfriend’s jeans zip to come with a finger print sensor , and finger print to open that zip would be mine for sure.

Alex Jenkins says:

Errr… No. I would rather use a physical key that you have to put in a slot to turn a barrel to open the door or turn the ignition on, as I do with my current car, an ’08 Toyota Aygo (It has remote locking, but I don’t like using it, mainly because of all the remote break-ins and thefts of cars we’ve had in my local area)

Nechemiah seltzer says:

Why didn’t know one think of this before?? I literally thought of this idea when I was 13 and only now some massive corporation has done it!!
Can someone please explain??
